As I type this, we are travelling to Pittsburgh for the National
Youth Workers Convention. Mary and I are in the truck and Paul and
Lisa are in their car. We left this morning about 1130 am. A little
later than we wanted to, but we are underway. It has been a pretty
good day of travel as we have FRS radios to talk to each other. We
realized that we have tomorrow off, so we can sleep in, before the
I always look forward to these conventions, besides listening to the
seminars about youth ministry, this is a time for me to take a rest
before the wnter season at work. Mary and I were looking forward to
this before we got married anyway, but now we are married, so this is
kind of like another mini-honeymoon.
The one thing about the convention I like is the contemplative prayer
services that are available (I know John Wesley meditated, but I
think at times I am a closet Quaker). This has always been a great
time to get recentered.
I will be blogging about this as the weekend goes on this weekend, so
stay tuned for details….
